About the Master's degree programme Mechatronics

The MSc programme in Mechatronics offers you an in–depth technical and practice–oriented scientific training in the field of mechatronics. Before you start your studies, you will need to choose three of the following five specialisations:

  • Sensor systems and actuators
  • Embedded Systems
  • Robotics
  • Computer Aided Engineering — FEM, CFD
  • Production Technology

Other subjects in the Master‘s degree programme include an in-depth study of higher mathematics. Students are also required to provide analytical, mathematical and numerical descriptions of physical and technical issues and processes, and find solutions to various challenging problems. Advanced scientific, in-depth business expertise and preparation for leadership responsibilities complete your profile, and can be learned (German and English modules) from the courses the module library.

In the 4th semester, you can focus entirely on your thesis.

In all technical courses, we place particular emphasis on the application and understanding of occurrences and correlations.
